NaNoWriMo: When All Your Plans Change

I think most people who have heard me talk or read this blog long enough to get to know me know I’m very goal oriented.  A friend, who has since passed away, often complained that I was so goal oriented that I rarely stopped to enjoy my success before I was on to the nextRead more
